How We Snack On The Go + A Giveaway

Mila and I are always on the go and I love making snacks at home to take along with us. We have been making energy bites lately because they are so easy and delicious. Mila eats just about anything (for now) and I have found that blending up her favorite fruits in the energy bites is a great way to add more flavor and nutrients. We love using our Vitamix A2500 to quickly blend up the ingredients. Then we roll them in a bit of ground coconut, pack them up and head out on our way. I keep the energy bites in an air tight container in our refrigerator. Even Dan grabs a few on his way out the door heading to work. These energy bites include oats which keeps us feeling full and coconut flour that offers a sweet and nutty texture. I am excited for you to try these out! Keep in mind you can switch up the strawberries and use mangos, blueberries or apples instead. Tip if you use apples add a pinch of cinnamon too. Here is how you make them …

Strawberry Energy Bites 

What you need - 1 cup strawberries, 1 cup steel cut oats, 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, 1/2 cup coconut flour, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 1 cup ground coconut flakes to coat the balls. 

What you do - Blend together the strawberries, oats, sunflower seeds, coconut flour and coconut oil. Once blended, measure out bites 1 tablespoon at a time. Roll each bite into a ball. Coat each ball in the coconut flakes. Enjoy!

Since Mila was born I have been a huge fan of Petunia Pickle Bottom and their great diaper bags. I love LOVE their backpack style diaper bags because they give me the freedom I need when handling Mila. I am thrilled because Petunia Pickle Bottom now has these cooler packs, a handy caddy and small snack pouches all in rad prints. The Petunia Pickle Bottom Intermix Collection has quickly become my favorite and a necessity when packing snacks and things for Mila. We typically spend most days out and about so these small bags and accessories help keep all our needs organized. It makes me feel like Super Mom when I have all my stuff together nice and neat. Even Mila knows which bag houses her snacks. Having everything in order sets us up for success, which equals a great day! 

I am so excited to have paired up with Vitamix and Petunia Pickle Bottom for the biggest giveaway I’ve ever done! You guys! I am giving away a Vitamix A2500 AND the Petunia Pickle Bottom Intermix Collection to one lucky winner. Just enter below and for extra entries follow @babyboybakery, @vitamix and @petuniapicklebottom on Instagram.
